Clinton to meet with Syrian exiles

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is using a European trip to hold a rare meeting with Syrian opposition figures.

Clinton plans to sit down with seven Syrian-born opponents of the Bashar Assad regime during a visit to Geneva, Switzerland on Tuesday. A State Department official says it's only the second time she has held such a session since the U.S. decided this summer that Assad would never allow reforms and must leave office.
